Storyline

A peddler of "the best glue" sets up his outdoor stall. A crowd gathers for a demonstration. As he gives his pitch, two observant cops decide drive off his customers and close him down, much to his fury. He seeks revenge as they sit on a park bench. Incensed, they give chase to administer frontier justice. The crowd, with a mob's psyche, cheers on whomever is on top. It's a pity because this glue really does work.

It won't Grip You
14 November 2009 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

Georges Melies, the pioneering French master of trick cinema, puts his trickery away here to present us with a straightforward slapstick (geddit?) comedy that is mildly amusing but is well below his best work. Melies himself plays a glue salesman who finds his prospective customers chased away by a couple of sceptical policemen. The vendor gets his revenge by gluing the cops arms together as they sleep on a park bench only to have the tables turn on him when they later glue him to a door. The acting is very over the top (e.g. holding hands to one's head then flinging them skyward, etc) and the pacing is a a little off with too much time spent on the first scene.
